Dea r Editor ... Is ther e any doubt, in anyone's m ind, that the incr ease in m inim um w age is to buy votes ? Nothing m or e, nothing less (does gas-plant closur es com e to m ind)? But w as ther e any thought put into Bill 148, "The Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017," that r aises the m inim um w age, pays par t-tim e w or ker s the sam e as full tim e w or ker s, paid sick days for ever yone, paid vacation tim e for ever yone, and m ake em ployee scheduling fair er ? Ser iously?!? Face it, the m ajor ity of em ployer s w ant people to pr osper , it's just good business sense. But gover nm ent is effectively destr oying business, and the ever yday per son w ith this r ash incr ease. The r epor t "M inim um Wage Incr eases, Wages, and Low -Wage Em ploym ent: Evidence fr om Seattle," by the U.S. National Bur eau of Econom ic Resear ch, is a pr im e exam ple of gover nm ent inter fer ence, w ith pr ivate sector w ages, putting business and w or ker s at r isk . Ther e ar e var ious gr oups, in Ontar io, telling people to go out to local bar beques and speak w ith their M PPs about this, but is that actually going to assist sm all business? No, because an M PP w ill be in fear they w on't get elected. They w ill pay lip ser vice to sm all businesses; they w ill pay differ ent lip ser vice to special inter est gr oups w ho ar e looking for this incr ease ? but w ill anyone tell the people that an incr ease to $14 in 6 m onths, and then another incr ease to $15, w ithin a year , is going to put people out of w or k and r uin the economy? And w hat about using som e r eason, som e com m on sense and looking at the r eality of life in Ontar io? Obviously gover nm ent hasn't used any, or gover nm ent w ouldn't be out ther e pr om ising subsidies to sm all business because they w ant to buy votes. Question ? w hat about Canada's inter national tr ade deals? Ar en't subsidies in violation of those tr ade deals? Oh, and don't for get NAFTA ? How ar e the Am er icans going to deal w ith these subsidies? Businesses w ill have to lay people off; they w ill close; or they w ill have to incr ease pr ices by over 31%. So w hat happened to that incr ease in pay? You w on't be able to affor d anything because the pr ices ar e too high. You'll be w or king less hour s because your em ployer can't affor d it. Co-w or ker s ar e gone ? laid off because of the costs. And taxes w ill go up because of the subsidies gover nm ent w ill pay to select businesses to stay in business. The m oney has to com e fr om som ew her e, doesn't it? Add onto that, the pr ice of electr icity, after those subsidies r un out; the car bon tax, etc., and ther e w ill be ver y few businesses left in Ontar io for anyone to w or k at. That's the New -Dem o-Pr ogr essive-Con-Liber al Par ty for you ? no sense, no r eason and not in the best inter est of Ontar ians? sham e, sham e, sham e.

M ERRIAM Celiac disease, also known as coeliac disease is different from Gluten Intolerance. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder caused by gluten intolerance. Gliadin, a protein in wheat, causes the afflicted persons immune system to attack its own bowel tissue. This causes villous atrophy, or the erosion of the nutrient absorbing villi that line the small intestine. Other grains, like barley and rye, have similarly shaped proteins which can cause the same reaction in sensitive individuals. If you experience these symptoms, consult with your medical professional.

Avoiding Gluten can be very difficult, but there are some products that make it easier. At Marrow & Spice, we carry the product line of The Mix Company, a Certified provider of Gluten free mixes for everything from cakes to pizza, sauces to salad dressings. These products have proven to be excellent according to our customers. We also carry Gluten-Free crackers, pasta, and ready-made salad dressings! Come and see us and we will help you eat healthy and delicious meals that do not affect your condition. All of our Local Drug-Free meats are Gluten-Free, as are salads and vegetables.

Toronto, Ontario ? Local music f an Ryan Theoret (cent re in phot o above) f ul f il l ed his l if e l ong dream of meet ing l egendary band Met al l ica. Special to The Seeker Newspaper, he shares his experience with us here: ?On Sunday, July 16th, Metallica played to a sold out show at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. Aside from being their first North American trek since 2009, the band was also offering Experience Packages. Out of the 50,000 fans in attendance, only 12 were lucky enough to buy a Hardwired Experience. I was one of those 12. At a mere $3,300 dollars, instead of back packing through Europe or sitting on a beach in Australia for a week, I decided to fulfill my life long dream of meeting my favourite band and all the experience it had to entail. I started listening to Metallica at the age of 14. By the time I was 15 they were my go to band. What can I say? For myself, there was a song for every occasion, experience and moment of my life. I constantly related to their music. Be it that classic thrashy sound from the 80s, their bluesy hard rock from the mid 90?s or the brutality that is St. Anger, I?ve stuck by this band and still do. Music has always been my greatest passion and for myself, Metallica delivers on all fronts.


Having seen the band live 8 times previously, this show was like no other. It was bigger, louder and of epic proportions. The stage alone took 3 days to set up accompanied by a laser show that took 640 human hours to program. Showcasing 5 songs from their latest

release, the 8 time Grammy award winners relied heavily on their back catalogue that built their fame. Complete with more pyro and fireworks than a Canada 150 celebration, old and new fans were head banging to the likes of ?Master Of Puppets?, ?One? and ?Sad But True?. Playing 18 songs over 2 hours and 15 minutes, the 3 song encore included the deep cut of ?Blackened? and fan favourite ?Nothing Else Matters?. The quartet would end the set with the radio staple ?Enter Sandman?. While the show was phenomenal, it was the behind scene events prior to that contained the true magic. The memorabilia museum featured display cases consisting of hand written lyrics, awards and framed platinum records. However, it was posing with and playing the actual guitars of Kirk Hammett (lead guitar) and James Hetfield (rhythm guitar/ vocals) that was truly spectacular. The only thing that could bring things to the next level would be a one on one with the band. The words to describe meeting one?s idols are far and few in between. I am still speechless on how humble and real the members of Metallica are in person. Fame aside, they are just four guys living life their way. The entire day was certainly a once in a lifetime experience I won?t forget until the day I die. While one might say I?m crazy, the truth is I?ve always been Hardwired for Metallica. Nothing Else Matters?. -Ryan Theoret

Sha ry n

THO M PSO N YOUR BEST RICE EVER! few weeks ago, I decided to serve brown basmati alongside some nice rainbow trout. Instead of plain rice, I invented a fruited rice dish that was simply delicious. When we were eating our supper, Gary asked me where I got the recipe for the rice. I said that I invented it. He replied 'Keep inventing, this is the best rice ever!' And isn't even fond of rice at all! So that really says something! The rice would go well with chicken, pork, beef or fish, as well as in any vegetarian meal. This rice dish would be wonderful at Christmastime.I hope that you try it for yourself.





(Al l ingredient s are avail abl e at Sharyn's Pant ry.) INGREDIENTS: 2 cups raw brown basmati rice 2 tsp. 'better than bouillon' roasted chicken base (We are carrying this delicious chicken base flavouring at Sharyn's Pantry now.) 2 tbsp. butter 1/ 3 cup slivered almonds 1/ 3 cup currants 1/ 3 cup dried cranberries 1/ 3 cup golden raisins 1/ 3 cup crystallized ginger, chopped 2 tbsp. 'better than bouillon' roasted chicken base flavouring METHOD: -I used my handy rice cooker to cook the rice. Into the required amount of water I added 2 tsp. of the 'better than bouillon' roasted chicken base flavouring. Then I let the rice cooker cook the rice perfectly. I do recommend getting a rice cooker. They are foolproof with perfect results every time. Mine is just a cheap no-name brand and works perfectly. No need to spend a ton of money on an expensive one. -If you don't have a rice cooker, just add 4- 1/ 2 cups of water to the 2 cups of brown basmati rice in a saucepan. Add the 2 tsp. of 'better than bouillon' roasted chicken base flavouring. Cook the rice for about 40 minutes or Ar ticle a nd Photo by Ja son Setnyk Sydney, Austr alia ?

The fans w ho have hear d it love it and I w ill be per for m ing it on my upcom ing tour s star ting in August,? Dave Evans stated. How did Dave Evans becom e the fir st lead singer of AC/DC? ?I answ er ed an ad in the Sydney M or ning Her ald new spaper for a heavy r ock singer and M alcolm w as on the other end of the phone line w hen I called. M y band at the tim e, Velvet Under gr ound (not to be confused w ith Lou Reed?s band) had just split up. M alcolm had been in the band ear lier befor e I had joined them so w e both knew of each other. He asked m e to com e for a jam w ith Lar r y and Colin as they w er e for m ing a band. I m et up w ith them and jam m ed and w e then shook hands and said w e had a band! We did not have a nam e yet though. Angus auditioned a w eek later as his band Kentuckee had also split up and then he w as accepted as the fifth m em ber of the yet unnam ed band. We decided on AC/DC a few w eeks later ,? Dave Evans r ecalled. W hat w as it like w or king w ith M alcom Young and Angus Young in 1973? ?We r ehear sed often and w e w er e all totally dedicated to being a sm ash hit

FRUITED BROWN BASMATI RICE until it is tender. Once cooked, fluff the rice with a fork, never stir it with a spoon or you will clump it all together and it won't be fluffy. -In a very large deep frying pan (I used a nonstick pan), melt the 2 tbsp. of butter and let it get nice and bubbly. -To this, add the slivered almonds and stir them around in the butter and let them brown for a couple of minutes. -Now add the currants, golden raisins, dried cranberries and the chopped crystallized ginger pieces to the buttered almonds. Let this mixture sautĂŠ for 5 minutes. -Lastly, add 3 or 4 cups of the cooked brown basmati rice and the 2 tbsp. of 'better than bouillon' roasted chicken base flavouring. Stir to combine and allow to cook for a few minutes. -Try not to keep eating spoonfuls of the rice at this point. I think it must be the crystallized ginger that makes the rice taste so amazingly good. It compliments the raisins and currants so well. -Leftovers were just as good for a couple more meals. ENJOY!

Article by Jason Setnyk | Photo by Terje Johansen Ottawa Ontario ? Metal fans won?t run to the Gatineau Hills when Blaze

Bayley, former lead singer of Iron Maiden and Wolfsbane, brings his ?Endure and Survive?World Tour to Ottawa?sBrass Monkey on August 17th. ?Endure and Survive?, the title of Blaze Bayley?s ninth solo album, was released in March of 2017. It?s the second in the ?Infinite Entanglement? trilogy which tells a creative sci-fi narrative. A music video for the song ?Escape Velocity?, directed by Richard Pembridge, and written by Blaze Bayley, Chris Appleton, Michelle Sciarrotta ? was recorded using Bruce Dickinson?s flight simulator. Of course, Bruce Dickinson was the singer of Iron Maiden before and after Blaze Bayley. ?Well, I got in touch with Bruce Dickinson, and said I got a song that I think would be good in a flight simulator. Can I borrow your flight simulator? He said yes. We went down there, and we made a music video in Bruce Dickinson?s flight simulator. It was absolutely fantastic, with all the different pilots getting trained, and we?re there making a video. It was a lot of fun doing that video? Blaze Bayley exclaimed. Blaze Bayley was the lead singer of Iron Maiden from 1994 to 1999, replacing Bruce Dickinson, and later being replaced by Bruce Dickinson. Blaze Bayley recorded two albums with Iron Maiden: ?The X Factor? and ?Virtual XI?. Hit songs during this time period included: ?Man on the Edge?, ?Lord of the Flies?, ?Sign of the Cross, ?The Edge of Darkness?, ?Futureal?, and ?The Clansman?. Hundreds auditions occurred to find the new lead singer of Iron Maiden in 1994, and Bruce Bayley was selected. According to Bruce Bayley himself, he wasn?t the best person for the job. ?I don?t think I was the best person at all. I think a lot of people there were better singers than me. It?s a complete mystery to me why they choose me. My voice is so different to Bruce Dickinson. I did love the band, I was a huge fan of the band before the audition. I knew all the songs, and I also knew all of the drum parts as well, and I could air guitar every single rift of every song, so I think perhaps that helped a little bit. For me, the most important thing about being in Iron Maiden was the music. It?s just fantastic. I loved singing that music, and learning the writing process, and working with Steve Harris, who was like a mentor to me. I really feel like I found my true voice in Iron Maiden, and I carried on with the lessons I learned about song writing and singing since then. That?s what I put into my own solo recordings,? Blaze Bayley reflected. What was Blaze Bayley?s favourite album or song with Iron Maiden? It?s too hard for Blaze Bayley to pick one album or one song, but he really does enjoy performing the song ?Virus? that appeared on ?Best of the Beast?. ?It?s too difficult to choose. There are so many great songs on both albums. You?ve got ?Sign of the Cross?, ?The Clansman?, ?Lord of the Flies?, and ?Virus? on Best of the Beast album which is one of my favourites. I do my own version of ?Virus? in my live set, and it sounds absolutely lovely. Iron Maiden never played ?Virus? live. Both albums are dear to my heart, and I learned so much on the tours that we did together. It was an absolutely fantastic time,? Blaze Bayley replied. Blaze Bayley also sang with iconic metal band Disturbed at UK?s premier music festival Download in 2016 in front of 85,000 fans. He was invited to sing vocals on a cover of ?Baba O?Riley? by The Who.

M RS.B Everyone must have heard about salt lamps. Years ago they were very popular but have resurfaced in the past couple of years because of celebrity endorsements.

If you are just a little curious as to how these lamps work, I am afraid that I have no scientific proof that they do indeed work. Having said that, just ask a few of our regular customers who have purchased them and they will tell you how much better they feel with these visually charming lamps in their homes. People suffering from allergies, asthma or respiratory complaints have been known to gain relief. Many sleep best by the ocean and appreciate the freshness and ionisation of air that a small level of salt can bring. Natural salt products can freshen and improve air quality and many see them as a great antidote for improving the atmosphere of a home by reducing the proportion of positively charged ions. The lamps are recommended for smelly and smoky areas, pet areas, bedrooms, around computers, televisions and electronic equipment. Meditation areas, yoga centers, spas and massage centers are all great places to use these salt lamps as well. Regardless of what you believe about salt lamps, the light itself is soothing and creates a beautiful warm ambiance. Also being a natural product, no two lamps are exactly the same. Salt lamps absorb moisture and you should protect your furniture wherever you place them. When not in use, store the lamp in a plastic bag or dry place and to clean them just wipe with a damp cloth. I must admit that I was quite a bit skeptical about the validity of this product when first asked about it, but several devoted customers have convinced me that there is some merit to it. Just studying the shapes and following the crevices within each rock is an interesting means of meditation. We may be far from the coastline here but you can bring some balance and a little bit of the sea right into your home to enjoy for many years to come.

?Yes, I?m friends with John Moyer. (We hung out and) I met David Draiman, and he said, do you want to come on stage with us tomorrow, and sing a song, and I said yeah. That was it. The song we sang was ?Baba O?Riley?. It was a lot of fun because I?m a fan of The Who,? Blaze Bayley added.

Fans of Blaze Bayley can enjoy a more intimate concert at the Brass Monkey on August 17th with a special meet and greet for no extra charge. The concert in Ottawa starts at 7pm, the event is 19+, and admission is $20. Tickets are on sale online at Ticket Zone, or in person at the Brass Monkey or Long & McQuade in Ottawa South.

M a cDO NA Keeping your cot t age in t he f amil y Do you have fond memories of family summer vacations at the cottage spent swimming in the lake, building sand castles on the beach, or fishing on the dock? Do you envision your children and grand-children making similar memories there for years to come, even after you?re gone? If your wish is to pass on your recreational property to your children (or someone other than your spouse), keep in mind there are tax implications. Half of the capital gains on a cottage or vacation property are included in your income. Depending on the province you live in, the taxable portion could be taxed at up to 50 per cent. You might not be in the highest tax bracket, but the impact can still be significant.

You can?t avoid capital gains tax by selling your home and making your cottage your primary residence. And selling the cottage to your children for a token amount of $1 won?t help either. But there are things you can do to help minimize taxes on your estate. Here?s one way. Let?s say there?s $50,000 of tax owing from the capital gain on your cottage when your children inherit it. If you had purchased a $50,000 last-to-die life insurance policy with your spouse, your children would get a $50,000 tax-free death benefit after both of you pass away. That money could be used to cover the tax on the capital gain. Another strategy is to buy a life insurance policy, and name a charity as the beneficiary. Because charitable donations can be applied against up to 100 per cent of your net income in the year of death, the donation credit from the death benefit could reduce or even eliminate the tax bill. The end result: your children, as beneficiaries of the estate, would take over the cottage without having to worry about selling it to cover the taxes. These are only two of the options available. As a Sun Life Financial advisor, I can help you decide the best route to take and how much life insurance you need to protect the value of your recreational property. Everyone?s legacy will look different. I can help you tailor your legacy plan to address your unique goals and provide solutions for a tax-efficient transfer of your estate. If you have any questions regarding the topics in this column, please feel free to contact me.

?The song ?Hair of the Dog:, it w as actually called ?Son of a Bitch? as you pr obably know. Ever yone calls it that. Back in 1974-75 w hen w e r ecor ded that. We didn?t know w hen w e w ent to an Am er ican r ecor d com pany, A&M at the tim e, you can?t call it ?Son of a Bitch?. Sear s w on?t sell it. W hat ar e you talking about? It w as a big no-no, it w as consider ed a sw ear w or d w hich w e thought w as ver y funny, because w e hear d John Wayne saying it for godsakes. He w as an icon. It w asn?t an expr ession used in Eur ope. It w as an Am er icanism . No one in the band thought it w as a big deal. It m akes you laugh these days w hen you see w hat?s on a r ecor d w ith the hip hop guys. That w as a big thing at the tim e. It w as a sw ear w or d. Dear y m e! So w e couldn?t call the album ?Son of a Bitch?, because Sear s w ouldn?t sell it. So w e thought w e?d be sm ar t asses and call it ?Heir of the Dog? ? son of a bitch, haha. But after a few dr inks w e changed it to ?Hair of the Dog?. That?s basically w her e it cam e fr om . It?s not the title w e star ted out w ith, and ever yone calls the song ?Son of a Bitch? anyw ays. Now adays it w ould be called ?Son of a Bitch? and nobody w ould even blink their eye,? Pete Agnew sur m ised.

Nazar eth have m illions of fans ar ound the w or ld including including Axl Rose of Guns N?Roses. He w as such a huge fan of Nazar eth that they cover ed ?Hair of the Dog? on ?The Spaghetti Incident?? album . Axl Rose and Dan M cCaffer ty becam e fr iends, and he asked Dan to sing at his w edding. Unfor tunately, Nazar eth w er e in the m iddle of a w or ld tour at the tim e.

?Axl is a big fan of the band Nazar eth, especially Dan. He and Dan w er e good fr iends. W hen w e played in the ear ly days, w e had six show s in Califor nia, and they cam e out to ever yone of the show s. They w er e just r eally young guys, and big fans. Eventually they becam e huge. Axl w ould have liked Dan to sing ?Love Hur ts? at his w edding. Ther e w er e talks of it, but w e w er e on tour. We w er e in the m iddle of a big w or ld tour , and no w ay. A stor y star ts, and gr ow s legs, that?s one of those stor ies that gr ew big long legs. Axl just kind of m entioned it one tim e to Dan, it w ould be r eally nice if you could com e and sing. Unfor tunately w e w er e in the m iddle of Siber ia or Russia at the tim e. It w as just im possible to be ther e. We?r e still r eally good fr iends.

and it certainly did last Thursday, July 27th, when the Grind was packed to celebrate Chuck Leclair's life. The local musician who hosted their open Mic Nights for almost 5 years, sadly passed away earlier this year. People came , "remembering him with stories, songs, poems, tears and laughter", exactly the way Chuck would have wanted it. Open Mic Nights will continue at The Grind on the last Thursday of each month, from 7 to 10pm and will now be hosted by Peter Fortin.
